We’ll be honest: while the nearly endless chances to learn outside the classroom are exciting; while the personal relationships you’ll form with students and faculty are life changing; while the professional preparation you’ll receive here is exceptional—we believe the value of a Biola education lies in the opportunity to become a better you. If you’re willing to trust God’s hand in the process of ever-progressing and never quite arriving, you’ll leave Biola changed in the best possible way. Biola University is home to purposeful learners and compassionate leaders who want to see their communities and industries shaped by the grace and truth of Christ.
Faith that engages
True faith involves asking the hard questions, and we’ll be the first to admit that we don’t have all the answers. However, we are convinced that biblical truth should and does inform every aspect of the way we learn from, interact with, and respond to the world around us. That’s why we weave biblical integration into every discipline.
Our faith is far from anti-intellect. To the contrary, we take the commandment to love God with all our minds seriously. Curiosity and critical thinking shape learning in each of our academic programs, our study abroad opportunities, and the Torrey Honors Institute.
Community of belonging
If you ask alumni or current students what sets Biola apart, a theme will quickly emerge: they’ll want to tell you about our community with an eagerness that welcomes new relationships and adventures. At Biola, true belonging is matched by a call to become more like Christ.
Join a community ready to engage, wrestle with, and celebrate our differences. From multiethnic programs to affinity groups, Biola is committed to welcoming the perspectives of students from all kinds of backgrounds as we move toward a unity in diversity, reflective of the kingdom.
